asked the Minister of Transport what proposals he has for improving transport communications over the River Taw at Barnstaple; and whether he will make a statement.

I propose shortly to make an Order under Section 99 of the Highways Act, 1959, under which I shall, with the agreement of the Trustees, assume responsibility as highway authority for the Long Bridge. I intend to widen this bridge to provide a 24 ft. carriageway with two footpaths and to start work soon after entry to the land has been obtained.
